New bunk panels

Post by Fmedina771 » Sun Aug 12, 2018 12:23 am

Hey friends, I am a newbie and this forum has been a lot of help to me and getting my awesome b190 in even better working condition. I want to give back to the group so decided to create this post!

I purchased the van with my fiance about a month ago. It has been the best, and most fun purchase we have made together so far! Purchased with 85,000 miles from a gentleman in Baltimore. A couple days after we purchased it we drove from NJ to FL. Van is in great running condition and has been very well maintained. Previous owners kept record of EVERYTHING! So if anyone needs any help with manuals let me know! However there is water damage on the bunk panels and a bunch of water was under the bed. There were some signs of mold so decided to reseal windows and start ripping things out! I have attached some photos and will continue to post updates. Please let me know if anyone has any suggestions or recommendations.

VIN for records,

Thanks for documenting this.

As a side note, the pictures don't seem to be working.

Are you using 1/4 inch luon? Are you going to stain the panels to match the cabinets?

I am using 1/8 plywood. It is "RevolutionPly with Patriot Primed Moisture Shield Coating" from Lowe's. I'm not sure if this is the best option but just trying to build as fast as I could before season is over. I am planning on just going over it with a clear coat but honestly might leave it the way it is for now and go it in the near future. Will be posting photos soon
